We should all be concerned about the future because we will have to spend the rest of our lives there.~Charles F. Kettering
The past can't see you, but the future is listening.~Terri Guillemets
It is said that the present is pregnant with the future.~Voltaire
Looking into the sun, the road from Oroville, Ca to Sacramento seemed bright. The sun was right in my eyes. This highway was very boring. Long, straight, not much on either side of the road in these early 1980s, motorcyclists loved this road because most often one could see for miles down the road. Yet as I come up on Rio Linda, I almost got lost! what, the road curved a bit there, a fork came up, one definitely not expected, one not seen. On this road, the sun so bright in our eyes, we are sure we are seeing things as we are, but sometimes Father Sol blinds us. A bump, a curve, a dip suddenly appears, we did not see this situation coming. Often times, we are on such a road, a path that has been so long exactly the same that when someone reminds us that changes are coming, we don’t believe in the change, the path changing to turn a bit. Often times we don’t even want the change. We want the same steady, consistent life path we have, although our hearts tells us we are falling asleep at the wheel. So the great spirit sees we are headed into disaster, but we don’t listen. We can’t ‘see” the curve so we deny the fork being there. We also forget that although we aren’t listening to the future, the future fates, the muses are listening to us. The negativity, the doubt, the anger is heard when we say over, over again, this dream won’t happen, it’s been too long, it won’t happen. So we create our own reality, for a moment in time. But the 3 sisters of fate , muses who write the book of life, have already written the curve, the change in the road ahead. We can delay the path , we can refuse to take the fork in the road, we can deny it, but suddenly as Rio Linda popped into my path, our future is right here in front of us. Our lives are pregnant with changes, our road has curves, we just need to expect the unexpected.
animal totems: Ferret: David and I had a ferret once. The little guy stole socks. Bro ferret would go behind the chest of drawers, go up the back through the tinest hole, steal socks. His medicine helps us remember to squeeze through the tight spots, to see the hidden changes in the path that we can’t see coming. Ferret tells us with his totem that hidden things are on the path, to listen quietly to what spirit is telling us, to know that all life changes. The path may seem long, hard, unending, but all will be revealed in a blink of an eye. Ferret can be aggressive. Ours used to climb up the pants legs of a friend of ours, bite his leg quite aggressively. When the friend came we had to make ferret stay in another room. Aggressive, yet listening, ferret’s medicine of knowing how to discern people, discern the future is taught.
